We provide our pre-purchase home inspection services in and near Portland, ME.
Your real estate agent very likely recommended that any home you purchase must be inspected by a licensed and professional home inspection company. Even if the home already had a pre-listing inspection, it is not a bad idea to have your own inspection done for a second opinion. The way a home inspection works is that where all of the items typically used within a home will be tested or operated to make sure that it has been installed correctly and is operating properly. This is a visual process and the areas of the property that will be inspected are the ventilation and insulation, structure, the roof, the plumbing, the foundation, drainage, electrical, and heat and cooling systems.
Therefore, windows and doors will be opened and closed, the roof will be examined, and air conditioning/heating systems will be tested regardless of season. The inspector will fill the tubs, sinks, flush the toilets and run the showers and baths. The inspector will examine the voltage through electrical outlets by using equipment as well. The inspector will make notes on the condition and operation of the components tested and then a report will be distributed to you once complete.
You will be provided with a digital detailed report complete with pictures, and a summary listing as well as any concerns regardless of how minor or hazardous. Our home inspection company conforms to and exceeds the InterNACHI standards.
We will inspect a home and educate you about its condition as best as we can. When you are well educated about a home that you intend to buy, you’ll be able to make the best decision. We’ll answer all the questions you have about a home.
